Horrible toxic smell,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sassy Bathtime Pals Squirt and Float Toys (Baby Product)
I threw them out--total waste of money. They smell HORRIBLY TOXIC, the worst smell I've ever smelled from a toy and I do NOT have a good sense of smell and am not normally too sensitive in this area. I let them off-gas for almost 2 weeks and didn't make a difference. Then I read about the mold problem--mold grows inside so when your baby plays with them they are squirting mold particles into their mouths potentially. And to top it off, another reviewer says they have lead. Whatever is in them, the smell is bad enough that I wouldn't consider letting my babies play with them. No squirt toys for us!!

There's no lead.
As far as toxicity goes, this is one of the best bath toy sets you can get! (I researched a ton.) They are absolutely phthalate free, BPA free, and PVC free. They score well with things like lead, cadmium, bromine, etc. See the links below. If you don't like the smell, you might like some of the natural rubber toys Hevea or Vulli make, they're natural latex rubber. Some aren't even painted.
For those asking for something more substantial than a random blog making claims, here:
These guys were organized with the purpose of making child safety issues known as well as recalls:
This published paper only addresses PVC, but makes mention of other things like BPA and PVC. It's from the Oregon Environmental Counsel. The Sassy Bathtoys are mentioned as a good option:
